LOST 72 POUNDS.
Was Fast Drifting Into the Fatal
Stages of Kidney Sickness.
Dr. Melvin M. Page, Pago Optical
Co., Erie, Pn., writes: "Taking too
many Iced drinl.s in New York In
1895 sent me home with a terrible at-
tack of kidney trouble. 1 had acute
pain in the back,
headaches and at-
tacks of dizziness,
wtf , My eyes gave out,
and with the lan-
guor and sleepless-
ness of the disease
upon me I wasted
from 194 to 122
pounds. At the
time I started us-
ing Doan’s Kidney Pills an abscess
was forming on my right kidney.
The trouble was quickly checked,
however, and the treatment cured me,
so that I have been well since 1896
and weigh 188 pounds.”

New York firm ordering a supply of
After some inquiries as to whether
the line "really and truly” did “con-
nect with New York,” the young wom-
an finally decided to afford the com-
pany the benefit of her patronage.
Opening her hand bag she took there-
from various samples which she con-
sulted from time to time as she un-
dertook the task of expressing her
wants in the usual ten words. When
she had apparently completed tlTe in-
teresting operation, she attached two
of the samples to the telegraph form
and handed her message to the man
at the window. Her telegram read

If a w oman finds that her energies
are flagging, that she gets easily tired,
dark shadows appear under her eyes,
she has backache, headaches, bearing-
down pains, nervousness, irregularities
or the blues, she should start at once
to build up her system by a tonic with
specific powers, such as Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound.
Following we publish by request a
letter from a young wife :
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
“ Ever since my child was bom I have suf-
fered, as I hope few women ever have, with in-
flammation, female weakness, bearing-down
pains, backache and wretched headaches. It
affected my stomach so I could not enioy my
meals, and half my time was sp ut in bed.
“Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
made me a well woman, and I feel so grateful
that I am glad to write and tell you of my
marvelous recovery. It brought me health,
new life and vitality.”—Mrs. Bessie Ainsley,
611 South 10th Street, Tacoma, Wash.
What Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Compound did for Mrs. Ainsley it will
do for every sick and ailing woman. •

Some grocers say they don’t keep
Defiance Starch. This is because they
have a stock on hand of other brands
containing only 12 oz in a package,
which they won't be able to sell first,
because Defiance contains 16 oz. for
the same money.
Do you want 16 oz. instead of 12 o%.
